(8-week Mindfulness for Wellbeing Course)

“I had no experience of mindfulness or meditation and had been suffering with anxiety for a couple of years. I was slightly apprehensive about whether I would be able to sit still for about an hour and think about stuff, or not think about stuff. But John’s gentle, open and practical teaching style made me feel very much at ease and put my nerves to rest.

From the first week of the course onwards I have found that it has gifted me with the ability to actually be calm without having to in some way inebriate or exhaust myself; firstly with the Body scan which I looked forward to doing each day, and especially the mindfulness of breath.

Progressively each week I found that I was enjoying using the insights that I was taught. The mindfulness of breath is something that I now use every day. I have learned to recognise when anxious feelings arise that I can let them go and that being aware of my breathing helps massively.

As I continued to practice over the weeks I found that having the opportunity each week to discuss the weeks experiences of meditation with John very helpful. As a teacher myself I know that listening is a really important part of being an effective teacher; John clearly listened to me and his insights into my experiences were very illuminating and helpful.

I have missed the class since it finished, and am hoping that John will run some more soon that I can go to!”
